Marty, David, Pete, Clyde, Gene

We formed in 1969 while we were in high school and went on the road in 1971.   We went different ways in 1973.  We played mostly rock and R&B and had a couple of sets of original music.  We had the time of our lives and made money.

Marty still plays professionally.  David owns and runs a music store.  Pete still plays and jams with different people.
